“Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Liked it but only if you're a walker and nearby anyway. Very well thought out and worth the walk but I wouldn't cross Countries to use it

“Get some exercise and take in the scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The boardwalk encourages you to walk along the river because it makes the walk easy and manageable even for the disabled. Beware the stiff breeze off the Atlantic Ocean.

“Beautiful walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We walked along the beach to the point then back via the boardwalk and into the village. A lovely place for a pre or post dinner walk.

“perfect mix of nature and development”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Lovely boardwalk across the dune with excellent and varying views every step of the way. Was well worth visiting even on a windy, stormy day. Stopover at Restinga beach cafe-restaurant optional but highly recommended.

“Easy Walking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

A really good walk in a conservation area that criss-crossed its self around the sand dunes and beach to the sea, all easy walking.
